Chapter 2624 – Coming Events Cast Their Shadows Before Them(4)

The sudden question left Zhang Manlin fazed and unprepared.

"I..." She was suddenly feeling awkward.

After all, it was the first time she had met a man who asked her such a question so directly. Qin Chu really didn't play by the books.

"President Qin... I..." She wanted to explain.

"Just tell me whether you do or don't," Qin Chu continued aggressively.

Yes." Finally, Zhang Manlin decided to give it a try. She wanted to see how Qin Chu would react.

Truthfully speaking, when Huo Siqian assigned her this mission, he showed her many pictures of Qin Chu.

Although the man really was handsome, she had always told herself sensibly that it was only a job.

She planned to retire after the mission was over. She was going to take the money Huo Siqian paid her and get more plastic surgery to look even more beautiful.

After all, Huo Mian's face was just cute, not gorgeous...

She would then use the remaining money to buy a car and a house and marry a rich man. Her life would be perfect. Unfortunately, things never really work out quite as planned.

Through the few times she came in contact with Qin Chu, her heart grew fond of the man uncontrollably.

Her mind was filled with thoughts of him even when she was home at night, and Huo Siqian took notice of her feelings too.

She changed her previous wish. After Huo Siqian took Huo Mian away, she would take her place and marry into the Qin Family.

Although she would become a stepmother to two kids, she would also become the young madam to billions in family fortune.

It was Zhang Manlin's dream to live a life like that: endless money and a handsome husband.

Seeing how Qin Chu doted on Huo Mian, he would definitely treat her well too, especially since Huo Mian was only able to give him two daughters, not sons.

If she was lucky, she would give Qin Chu a son. Then... Qin Chu's parents would treat her well too.

At that time, most of the Qin Family's fortune would land in her hands...

"President Qin, since you asked, I'll tell you the truth. I do like you. That's why I always want to meet you. Of course, you can think that I'm after your money... If that's what you think, I can't do anything about that." Zhang Manlin tried to play the pity card and acted like a little girl that was wronged.

Qin Chu remained silent...

Zhang Manlin felt anxious so she continued to play the pity card. "I don't know if I should do this or not. After all, you're still married to Vice Director. Liking you while you're still married is a mistake to begin with, so... if you didn't ask me, I would've never said it out loud. I mean, how could someone as important as you like someone as ordinary as me? I should be happy you're even willing to be friends with me..."

"I don't think that." It was impossible to tell what Qin Chu was thinking.


Then... can we still meet later?" Zhang Manlin asked quietly.

"I'll pick you up at your home later."

With that, Qin Chu hung up the phone...

Zhang Manlin couldn't contain her happiness, and she immediately jumped in joy and danced around her room.

She then ran to her closet to pick out the perfect outfit to attract him with.

Finally, she chose a light yellow shirt and picked up a black baseball cap, both look very youthful and both very much like Huo Mian's style.

Imitating Huo Mian had already become her habit...

-The City Police Bureau -

"Hi, who are you looking for?" A police officer at the front stopped Huo Mian.

"I'm looking for Gao Ran."

"How do you know our chief?" The officer looked up and down at Huo Mian.

Just as Huo Mian was about to reply, Gao Ran walked out of the building, his expression heavy.

"Gao Ran..." She waved her hand and Gao Ran saw her immediately. He walked over to her.
